As this WBTW story reports, the second annual Carolina Brotherhood bicycle ride is underway. Emergency responders from across the state are riding this year to honor six fallen brothers and sisters: Trooper Bobby Gene DeMuth Jr. of the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Master Police Officer Jeremiah M. Goodson Jr. of the Lumberton Police Department, Deputy Sheriff Dewayne Charles Hester of the Bladen County Sheriff's Department, Deputy Sheriff William Mast Jr. of Watauga County Sheriff's Department, Master Corporal Sandra E. Rogers of the Aiken Department of Public Safety, and Detective Randall "Shane" Thomas of the Henderson County Sheriff's Department.

On Sunday afternoon, the cyclists rolled into Darlington Raceway as part of their 700-mile ride through the Carolinas. They'll continue through the week, averaging 100 miles a day until they reach Boone, NC, on Saturday. The next stops are planned for Columbia (SC), Aiken (SC), Honea Path (SC), Hendersonville (NC), and Marion (NC). The event was started two years ago, to honor Asheville Fire Department Captain Jeffrey Bowen. Learn more and follow the riders progress at www.carolinabrotherhood.com.
